    Hello,

    Good lighting and good subjects .....
    These American Pelicans are only around the area for a couple of months; they will be gone by mid-august.

    Lovely images - the first being my pick for a ribbon!
     
  3. Very well done. I really like how you have cropped these images.
     
  4. Gorgeous shots Gilles. I was not aware that these were around in Alberta. I surely never saw any there.

    Hi Frits and thank You.
    Not sure when you were here, but I can only remember seing pelicans in the area (Calgary) for the past 6 or 7 years. We do have quite a few this year but they will be gone soon.
    Best regards.
